|sektor - the dark side of the moon [tonAtom.034] - sektor|
no, we don't select our artists by their homecountry, though it sometimes seems to look like this... sektor's "the dark side of the moon" is a great set of six tracks and this is the reason for electing him for this release. fresh, exceptional and independent. to extend the list of the tonAtom artists-countries with bulgaria is a nice side-effect. so prepare to explore a new country, well actually a real new world through your ears with this release...

|Rivel - Sum - [one021] - Rivel|
If sum is defined as the equal of two parts, Nathan McCoy's (Rivel) new EP is the product of clean, focused production and mindful harmonic mastery. Sum conjures up images of years past, those innocent but haunting moments that creep up in the back of our minds that cannot be, ironically enough, summed up easily. Instead of letting complexity get the best of him, Rivel's approach to IDM is refreshingly simple and well crafted...

|Partikel - Strukturer (Omstrukturerad) - [one015] - Partikel|
Strukturer was the lone release from the short lived netlabel imprint, Arkitekton. We loved it so much that upon the news of Arkitekton folding we hounded Jimmy Svensson aka Partikel to rerelease it somewhere - somehow. Lo and behold, here it is given new life. Including 2 new tracks and 3 new remixes from some favorite members of the One camp. This beat heavy excursion into minimal techno has a driving confidence and strong prescence with which it excells in theme and seperates itself from othe...

|Paranerd - Cold reflect - [one014] - Paranerd|
Hailing from Canada, Paranerd's songs individually reveal themselves like being lost in specific thought. Continuously reflective themes rather than catchy clips with the occasional exclamation point. Unraveling the most vulernable moments. While many electronic musicians utilize repetition and hooks, he has an introverted and personal approach to writing that puts in you a position of wondering where the layers of melody or mood will go next...

|Lomov - Ecru [one010] - Lomov|
These bites of electro, techhouse, idm and ambience by Axel Bergk further explore the minimalist corners of One. Often exploring disharmony made naturual by under-pinned hooks, subtle changes, atmospheric textures, and repetition. Just shy of an hour, Ecru is a long player that with patient listening reveals a comfortable coherence. While being mostly minimal and beat driven it doesnt fail to bring up emotion or experience thats important to every release selected here...

|Izmar - Conscious EP [mtk149] - Izmar|
Dutch-based artist Izmar has been releasing on Monotonik for a couple of years now, starting with his marvellous pair of 'Aze' albums, which shifted him way away from minimal techno roots into almost Fila Brazillia-style jazzelectronic territory. Now, we get a second follow-up EP, 'Conscious', which shifts his wonderful nu-chill in yet another direction, thanks to his unusual use of a sitar on top of his normal voice and live instrument cornucopia...

|Emil Klotzsch - Sandkorn - [one017] - Emil Klotzsch|
Despite the glut of mangled beats and click/glitch sound emerging from Germany on a daily basis, few manage to reveal something soulful and engaging like this debut from Cologne's Emil Klotzsch. He infuses electronics with recorded instruments that often seems to take an equally obscured touch by the computer. And somehow.. underneath all the schizophrenia of sound - a solidly melodic, mature, and flowing experience is delivered...

|Emil Klotzsch - Feinquisit - [one028] - Emil Klotzsch|
Emil marks his return to One with more of the material in which we first got to know him - a spazzy blend of experimentation, disjointed rhythms and instrumentation. His playful but melanchoic spirit brings half-smiles to its listeners through an equally schizophrenic approach to mood and style as perhaps displayed best with his return to vocals on 'geteiltes sein'. Feinquisit (while offering glimpses of what will and what was to come on Sandkorn) manages to follow roads we haven't witnessed fro...

|[APL036] Emil Klotzsch - Tiefe Berge - Emil von Stosch|
"The Highlands consist of an old dissected plateau, or block, of ancient crystalline rocks with incised valleys and lochs carved by the action of mountain streams and by ice, the resulting topography being a wide area of irregularly distributed mountains whose summits have nearly the same height above sea-level, but whose bases depend upon the amount of denudation to which the plateau has been subjected in various places." (from en.wikipedia.org) The intention behind ÃÂTiefe BergeÃÂ was for ...

|Planet Boelex - Misplaced EP [mtk163]|
We're delighted to be able to release Finland's idm maestro Planet Boelex's third EP for Monotonik, 'Misplaced', following some enchanting EPs and single releases for netlabels including Ogredung, Aerotone, and Afe Records. Actually, it's arguably the most reflective of the bunch, even including guest vocals and guitar, as Ossi, aka Boelex himself, stretches across ever more expansive, ambient Scandinavian vistas...

|Tatsu - August EP [mtk152] - Tatsu|
Having discovered Japanese techno artist Tatsu from his wonderful early work on his net.label Bumpfoot, we co-opted him to do an exclusive new EP on Monotonik, and the immensely lush 6-track 'August EP' is the result, showcasing the immensely pure, almost Detroit-tinged pastoral electronica - no tricks, no feints, just a trip back to the classics. We start with 'Stillness/Introspective Me', which briefly showcases some gorgeous ambience, before moving straight into 'Sky and Sea/Daytime Dream', w...
